House Energy and Commerce Schedules #DisruptFTC Subcommittee Hearing on Bills to Limit FTC Authority
On Tuesday, May 24, the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade will continue its #DisruptFTC effort by holding a hearing titled, "Legislative Hearing on 17 FTC Bills." As part of the hearing, subcommittee members will consider several bills aimed at limiting the authority of the Federal Trade Commission, including the six bills we discussed in our May 5 post. The lead sponsors of these six bills are all members of the subcommittee, including Subcommittee Chairman Michael Burgess (R-TX), Subcommittee Vice Chairman Leonard Lance (R-NJ), Rep. Brett Guthrie (R-KY), Rep. Susan Brooks (R-IN), Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS), and Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK). We'll continue to track the progress of these bills as they move through Congress, so check back here for updates.
The hearing is scheduled for 10:00am on May 24th and will be broadcast live on the committee's website.
